  1. Nor have I..on 46 Azamara cruises. I'd have told 'em to pound sand. Never seen it in the Cabaret, either.
  2. Agree. There should be a penalty for booking several cruises and then deciding at some later time which one to take. Makes it difficult for a cruise line to run its business.
  3. We've found N2 suites to be quiet. If you're booking Pursuit, however, try to avoid the most aft N2 suites as they might get noise from chairs moving on the outdoor part of the Windows buffet above.
  4. If this was the evening where a small orchestra and vocal soloists performed a dramatic piece by a local composer while an appropriately violent thunderstorm raged, memorable it was. Captain Jose had the buses pulled right up to the tent to keep us dry for the ride home.
  5. Seems to me the pre-refit rooms became "adjoining" by opening the two inner cabin doors and closing the outer door to the hallway. So 520 and 518 should still be adjoining, as 220 and 218 were before.
  6. Yes! How could I forget? Wonderful French wines, cheeses, breads, pastries, and an intoxicating spirit of joie de vivre. A true celebration.
  7. Oops! It was Koper, not Kotor. Short walk from the ship to the lovely old town square. Also in Koper is an excellent excursion where you have lunch with a local family. We've done it twice, both times hosted by the man who put together the first Koper AzEve with Perpetuum Jazzile, his wife and her mother. Came back to the ship stuffed, more than a bit drunk, and very happy. Highly recommend.
  8. Perpetuum Jazzile a cappella concert in Kotor's main square, with local wines, local cheeses and meats Choral concert in what had been the hospital of the Knights of St. John in Valletta
  9. I can't think of one, either. The ships are too big for Windstar and that's the only possible "outcome" that wouldn't be negative.
  10. Phil got it right in post #5.
  11. Vibration on the stern has only been a problem for us when going at full speed. Noise from above only on Pursuit because of its different chairs on the Windows veranda.
  12. My TA puts final payment date a week ahead of Azamara's date. I asked him about this and he said he wants to be sure payment is made on time with no slip up, otherwise the cruise line would cancel your cruise. There's no financial incentive for him to want to do this, as payment goes directly to the cruise line. Our TA and his wife own the company, a large worldwide operation, and he tells me the company is getting plenty of bookings for 2021 and 2022, as his clients feel they need something good to look forward to.
  13. Understand, Phil. I was doing the same, and making the point that refundable OBC is pretty much the same as getting discounted fare from the cruise agent.
